DTP Santa Barbara, California Chapter Leader

My name is John Duffy, and I am a financial advisor, planner, and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® professional. I believe in service as a way of life and I endeavor to help others personally and professionally.


I founded Zen Divorce Solutions to help couples amicably identify, evaluate, and equitably divide assets in a fair and respectful manner during divorce.


I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management and began working in tech in Silicon Valley. I moved to Santa Barbara to start a family and begin my career in finance. I am happily re-married to my wife, Star, and together we added a son and daughter to our blended family. When I am not watching my younger children’s soccer games or gardening, I enjoy scuba, ice hockey, camping and traveling. I am the former board chair of Pacific Pride Foundation, Santa Barbara’s LGBTQ+ organization, and am currently serving on the boards of Casa del Herrero and Hospice of Santa Barbara.
